Rockets’ Dwight Howard Not Rushing Return



Aiming to be 100 percent by the playoffs, center Dwight Howard said Tuesday he had fluid drained from his left ankle for a second time but that he is “not worried at all” that the issue will linger through the remainder of the Rockets’ regular-season schedule.

“There was more fluid in there the next time I saw the doctor,” Howard said. “It was best I get the fluid out and just rest. I’m not worried.”

“There is no need for me to rush and reinjure myself. I tried (to rush) last week. It didn’t work out too well for me. I don’t think it’s smart. The biggest thing I can be concerned with is the playoffs.”
